  • A very interesting museum, showing the ruins of a Roman settlement built during the Roman Empire. There's quite a bit to look at, with explanations in English. It is currently under reconstruction...

  • While I didn't give it a 5, that was only because it was under construction. It is definitely worth the 5 euro per person. Also, if you are visiting Barcelona, go here first because the ticket also...

  • Really enjoyed this museum. I went on Sunday afternoon and was pleased to find it is free on a Sunday after 3pm (I don't think it's especially expensive anyway but nice little surprise). You basically start the walkthrough by going down an elevator 15 metres or so and you're suddenly in Roman ruins that are ~2000 years old. It was very quiet when I went so easy to take my time reading every sign. Very interesting museum that gives you a deep understanding of the Roman history there and the transformations that happened afterwards.
  • The historical museum of Barcelona is definitely worth a visit when you are in Barcelona (especially if you are interested in history). With the Barcelona Card the entrance was free and there‘s was also no queue. The museum itself is very big and really interesting.
